Robotic Surgery for Esophageal and Gastric Disorders

Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, Massachusetts, offers several robot-assisted surgeries to aid in the treatment of esophageal and gastric disorders. State-of-the-art robotic-assisted surgery offers patients many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities

We offer the following robotic-assisted surgeries:

  • Robotic hiatal hernia repair and fundoplication are procedures performed to treat acid reflux disease (GERD). During the procedure the upper curve of the stomach is wrapped around the esophagus and sewn into place so that the lower portion of the esophagus passes through a small tunnel of stomach muscle to prevent reflux.
  • Robotic esophagectomy is a procedure performed to treat esophageal cancer by surgically removing the diseased portion of the esophagus.
  • Robotic partial and total gastrectomy are performed to treat stomach disorders such as cancer by surgically removing the diseased portion of the stomach.
